Good morrow fair recyclers!
Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing was just given a limited release in theaters, so we thought it was a great time to class up the blog a bit by featuring the Bard himself! We talk Shakespeare’s original play, Kenneth Branagh’s famous 1993 film, and of course Whedon’s new version. Plus, as a bonus, Drew and Anne recite some Shakespearean monologues of their own. With ad-libs. It’s more slapstick than sophisticated on this podcast.
This Month’s Trivia Question: Anne Baxter is best known for her portrayal of Eve in All About Eve, but in fact she had a long career before and after this film.

(Hint: She shares the role with a very young Anna Kendrick in the musical adaptation.)
